Tagged. Gee, thanks, Chris

List 5 weird things about yourself, tag five other people to do the same, and then comment on their blogs that they have been tagged. Have fun! Sweet of Chris, no? No?

Huh. Only 5?

1. I was born with a cataract in my left eye, so I had cataract surgery at the ripe old age of seven, waaaay before laser surgery. It's also same day out-patient surgery nowadays. Ha! I was in Children's Hospital for 3 weeks.

2. I read at stoplights. Personally I do not find that weird at all, but I have had numerous comments from other drivers. What? It's not like I'm talking on a cell phone while putting on mascara in the rear view mirror.

3. I hold open doors for people. I occasionally want to smack them in the head with the door, but for the most part people look surprised and grateful.

4. I hate to shop. Run in, either get what I want/need and leave.

5. I tape the various televised college programs like Chemistry, Earth, The Universe, Literature etc from one of our local PBS stations (KCSM, Channel 43) and watch them while I knit.

My five victims will be chitta'vrtti, Gromit Knits, Mim, Corrie and Aven. I think they've all commented either on my blog or to a comment I made on theirs. Or - hello! I read your blog all the time. Tag!

And in other exciting news, I finished one gray sock during continuing ed the last couple of days (and am almost done with the ribbing on the 2nd one!) I even did a round heel without directions (because the pattern I was using called for seaming the heel flap together lengthwise and using that as the bottom of the heel - uh, yuck. For one thing, great place for a seam [sarcasm] and for another, the entire lure and purpose of knitting socks is heel-turning. (Don't tell me that's #6 on my weird list). Okay, I still have to seam the toe together.

In the year 2006 I resolve to:

Cause more road rage.

Get your resolution here

Oh, that is just too, too easy. I'll finish the chapter.

I'd read at stoplights if I didn't enjoy just zoning out totally. Really, sometimes I think it's the only part of my day where I can just let my brain be on neutral.

Hee hee. :p

I'd get too involved in the book and not notice that the light turned green. Besides, it's too interesting to look around and catch people doing alarming things in their cars (mostly picking their noses - gosh, what were you thinking?!).

Chris, that's what horns are for. Or maybe I was waiting for a different green. No, I'm usually pretty good at keeping track. Lights are really, really long out here in Suburban Land.

Knowing you, tabbytuxedo, that is the only time your brain is on neutral. I'm surprised you don't knit at stoplights, what with all those KAL's.

Carrie - Re: your comment on my blog - too funny about your ex brother-in-law!

I just want to *hug* you when you are missing Sheba. I've never been as attached to a cat as I am to Chaos (who's only 27 months old), but I can project out to when he's not with me to know that I will be in rough shape. I am so glad you had such a wonderful cat as Sheba!! And glad that you have a surrogate neighbor cat for now. But I hope you can find space in your heart for a kitten sometime. :)

Oh, trust me, if it was up to me I'd have a house full of cats. Alas. Sheba was "grandfathered" in. But some day. Soon, with any luck.

What? That's twice I've been tagged. I am not doing ten. Five will be challenging enough as I am such a normal person from San Francisco..oh...wait..that would be one thing *g* ***CV
